. >> if those two different questions -- >> i'm going to call him a liar now. no. talking about the tax plans at the rallies. he was saying the same things on wednesday night and the other piece about how -- >> let me stop you there. i want to read to you if i can about a fact check about the tax. not cutting taxes for the wealthy. in the primary, cut taxes for everyone including the top 1%. suspect that a change? >> no, it's not. he's been saying the entire time that while he would be in favor of an across the board tax c of 25% for every taxpayer, those making over a certain amount of money he would close tax loopholes so their overall taxes that they pay and the overall tax plan would be tax neutral. i mean, it would be revenue neutral. the other piece is you mentioned this other story -- >> the story is specifics, hasn't it? >> i'll keep going back to this to seep the record straight. you all talking about this story that mitt romney had been saying and reported in other places that this is a new softer side of mitt romney. he's been telling that story for months. and so, i mean, this is
was on television a couple weeks ago and he was asked to explain governor romney's tax plan and he said, well, i don't have enough time to explain it. it's too complicated to explain it. well, he has 90 minutes tonight, so hopefully he'll have enough time to explain it. >> you read some of these reports, joe biden has been studying paul ryan's tax plan so hard, he may know it better than paul ryan. but are they right about what joe biden needs to do tonight? >> yoe biden as you said redemption in the lead, i like that word. he really has to shift the momentum of the race and make obama's people feel better. there was almost a suicidal tendency among democrats for a couple of days. it doesn't help you in the campaign. but i think there are two things biden has going for him, one, he really is a good debater. i went back and looked at stuff on the 2007/2008 debates and i wrote a column back then where biden beat all of them. and i led my column with the sentence does joe biden have to set himself on fire to get any attention. he's got the attention tonight. but the second thing he's got going for him
rich people and small businesses to tax to pay for all their spending. so the next time you hear them say, don't worry about it, we'll get a few wealthy people to pay their fair share, watch out, middle class. the tax bill's coming to you. >> michael, what was your take on the debate? >> i went back and read the transcript of the debate after it was over. if you go through point by point, it's amazing how often biden bests ryan on the actual merits of the policies they are talking about. i do think for the actual discussion was so complicated though, i do think a lot of people are going to take away from this debate whatever they came into the debate. it's hard to follow in realtime what they were saying about libya or tax policy. so you end up taking away the body language. whether you like joe biden or don't like joe biden and the polls show the country divided on that and people feel hot one way or the other, you would like his gesticulation. democrats needed to turn the page on the last debate with the president. take real punches at republican talking points and set the stage for
being less than honest about his tax cut plan. >> governor romney decided instead of changing his plan he just pretended it didn't exist. what $5 trillion tax cut? i don't know anything about a $5 trillion tax cut. pay no attention to that tax cut under the carpet. >> romney's campaign continuing a blitz of ohio today denying that he's a new moderate but here is what he told the des moines register yesterday. when asked about his agenda on abortion. >> there's no legislation regarding -- with regards to abortion i'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda. >> joining me now, "usa today's" washington bureau chief susan page and "time" assistant managing editor. good morning, both of. >> did you good morning. >> susan, romney's statement appeared to be away from the democrats tried use against them and campaign quickly issued a statement saying mitt romney is pro-life. what is going on with the romney message? >> well, i think romney is -- governor romney is definitely trying to pivot to the middle. we were waiting to do this last spring and early summer when he clinched t
